An experimental approach to mitigating hippo human conflict

The common hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius) is one of a handful of extant African megaherbivore species. Unlike other megafauna, hippo are relatively underfunded and understudied. Read more

Radar aeroecology: monitoring birds, bats and bugs with radar

The planet is suffering from an ongoing biodiversity decline. Contemporary methods for the monitoring of biodiversity tend to be taxon-specific, often cannot be scaled with existing resources, and are not applied in a consistent manner across studies. Read more

More crop per drop: optimising root system architecture for sustainable food production

The rising world population and increasingly conspicuous effects of climate change are creating a ‘perfect storm’ in which the demand for food and other agricultural commodities is growing dramatically and unsustainably. Read more

Exploring and exploiting strigolactone exudation in wheat

The detection of environmental information allows plants to shape their growth to prevailing conditions, and plays a key role in determining the productivity of crop species that feed the global population. Read more

Epigenetics and Cancer: Determining how Mistakes in V(D)J Recombination Trigger Leukaemias and Lymphomas

  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
V(D)J recombination is essential to produce an effective adaptive immune system but since the reaction involves the breakage and rejoining of DNA, it is highly dangerous and errors have long been thought to lead to leukaemias and lymphomas. Read more

Triple whammy – breeding wheat for increased winter growth rate

Crop root growth has generated significant interest with regard to net zero agriculture, because increasing root mass captures more carbon in the soil, and leads to more effective uptake of nitrogenous fertilizer. Read more

Mechanistic understanding and inhibitor design strategies for non-mevalonate pathway TPP-dependent enzymes

In this 4-year BBSRC iCASE PhD studentship between the University of Leeds and Syngenta PLC, you will investigate the structure, function and mechanism of plant enzymes important to the agriscience industry. Read more
